Director: Tobe Hooper
Starring: Steve Railsbeck, Mathilda May, Peter Firth, Frank Finlay, Patrick Stewart
The major selling point of this movie is the main character: a nude lady vampire from outer space. She’s an alien, she’s a vampire and she’s totally naked – for the entire movie. She comes to earth, but rather than sucking her victim’s blood, she sucks out their life force, leaving behind a trail of shriveled-up corpses, all the while wearing nothing – which is probably how vampires get about in outer space. The novel on which the movie is based features an extra-terrestrial nude lady vampire only at the beginning but the producers of this $25,000,000 spectacular weren’t taking any chances – so she’s nude all the time. For your average bad movie lover the film throws up a cornucopia of hammy performances, gruesome special effects and rampaging zombies. But for fans of unearthly, undead, undressed women there is no better movie in the entire universe!
